Nail Art is something we have always been hugely passionate about at Monaco, and there is currently an overwhelming trend towards expressing yourself through your nails.

Many Nail Technicians offer stamping or decal application to their clients – both of which can be done by anyone at home. Set yourself apart from (and ahead of) the pack by offering beautiful Hand-painted Nail Art to your clients.

What will I learn?

We start the course covering basic techniques that allow you to utilise the tools around you to make hand painted art easier to achieve in salon.

Techniques will include -

  • Straight and Curved Lines
  • Achieving Super Fine Lines
  • Full coverage without lots of layers
  • Using Dotting Tools to enhance your designs
  • How to Fix Your Mistakes
  • Painting Lettering

As the course progresses you will learn how to transfer any image from a flat 2D drawing onto a nail. This is the best part! Even without any artistic experience you will be able to take an image such as a cartoon character or animal and turn it into an incredible nail design.

What should I bring?

If you have them, please bring -

We will be working on tips and display wheels, supplied by Monaco. Your Educator will be demonstrating using Artistic products on the day and allow you to use our collection of colours however we highly recommend that you use your own colours so that the sample wheel you take home accurately reflects what you can offer to your clients. Don't worry if you don't use Artistic - bring your own products with you on the day and we'll share ours too. This class is not product specific.


If you run out of anything, plenty of stock will be available to purchase on the day.

Do I get a certificate?

You will do, yes! A Monaco Certificate will be presented to you on the day.

What do I get for my money?

Confidence! We know a lot of you get requests on a daily basis that you talk clients out of because you're scared to let them down. The way this class works is we're not teaching you a design for you to go away and copy - we're using basic designs to teach you techniques that you can transfer to any of those nerve wracking requests. Yes, we do the cartoon character towards the end. Everyone tells us in advance 'I can't do that' and so far we've been able to prove every single student wrong! You'll be inspired by what you can achieve in that afternoon session but the biggest take away from class is just having those basic skills down pat in the early stages so you can say 'yes' to more client requests with confidence.
